Wal-Mart Subjected to Premises Liability Lawsuit
Wal-Mart is at the root of another lawsuit this month after a worker is claiming injury on the job. Joshua Clark filed a lawsuit for premises liability after being injured on the loading dock. The lawsuit has been filed against Wal-Mart Stores Inc., Kelley Co., and Front Engineered Solutions and it includes product liability and negligence charges as well.
Clark, who works for a Wal-Mart supplier, states that he broke his foot while unloading a pallet of soda at the 1960 Cutten Road location in spring. Due to a broken loading dock assembly and pallet jack being left unattended, his foot became trapped. He states that Wal-Mart knew about the broken assembly equipment but had failed to fix it.
At this time, Clark is asking for actual damages and associated court costs and legal fees.
